All Sixth Form places are awarded on the basis of the interviews, together with the current school report. Candidates are asked to bring in samples of their academic work to their first, and possibly may be asked to sit a paper at their second interview.
Candidates are expected to gain A* or A grades in their chosen AS level subjects, and should have in total at least six GCSE passes at grade B or above.
We offer Academic, Music, Art and Drama Scholarships in the Sixth Form but candidates can apply for a fee paying place and/or one of the scholarship categories only. Those applying for a bursary will sit 2 academic papers in support of the application and therefore do not apply for one of the other scholarship categories as well.
The Chigwell Sixth Form is a vibrant part of the School where students gain a greater sense of responsibility, freedom and purpose. Most of our students study four AS subjects in the Lower Sixth and specialise in three of these in their second year of A level. Chigwell's A level results are impressive: in recent years >95% of Chigwellians have moved on to degree courses at university, or music and other specialist colleges, with 8% entering Oxford and Cambridge universities.
Students also have the opportunity to engage in other activities beyond their academic studies. Our Enrichment programme enables them to develop interests and opinions in a wide range of subjects from socio-political to the arts and pure sciences. Through the Duke of Edinburgh and Chigwell Award schemes students are encouraged to participate in activities such as voluntary service in the community, work experience, learning a new skill and an expedition.
Sixth Form is an important part of the school, and our students play an important part in its day-to-day life. They work with the staff to create a welcoming, caring and friendly environment, with many assuming considerable responsibility for the running of different areas of the School's life, in Chapel, Music, Drama, Sport and the social life of the Sixth Form.
The Sixth Form at Chigwell School is open to students from all around the world, and we welcome warmly the new insights they bring. For international students joining us in the Sixth Form, Chigwell has developed a unique provision, specially designed to give students new to the country all the support they need to succeed.

UCAS & Careers
Chigwell places a great emphasis on preparing our pupils for life after School. The Careers and Universities programme helps to open pupils' minds to the importance and scope of university education and the careers available beyond study. We seek to show pupils the options and possibilities available to them, so advice on university entrance plays a central part in our work, as does the wider careers education programme and regular careers conventions. We aim to ensure that their final decision-making is well informed and reflects their individual strengths and interests. As well as this preparation we also guide students on further reading, related work experience, lectures and in school and at University, taster days and courses, preparation for entrance tests, extended projects, preparation of the application form and interview practice. Uniplus also prepares the Sixth Form students for the practicalities of leaving home and making a real success of their university career.
